About this issue

This volume offers a collection of largely untold stories that together demonstrate women’s pivotal agency in the consumption and production of energy within the home, as well as their engagement with and responses to energy transitions. Perspectives emphasising women’s changing energy-related identities, behaviours, and experiences in many different contexts are accompanied by careful investigations into the factors influencing women’s decision-making with respect to new energy products. The authors not only provide a basis for the reframing of energy histories but also call for the application of these key perspectives in driving more attuned research, and for forcing change on how energy types and transitions are considered and managed in the future.
